Journey review: Sandy Sojourn -- ExtraGuy.com

Following up one of the greatest downloadable games of the generation must feel like quite the challenge during development, but thatgamecompany does so with style and grace. Journey is a uniquely beautiful game, both visually and conceptually, and the emotions it leaves you with will resonate after long after completion.

There isn’t an element in Journey that wasn’t extensively planned, despite the simple nature of what’s presented. Something thatgamecompany does well (maybe better than any other developer currently) is convey gameplay concepts and objectives without extensively spelling out the details — even the game’s title implies a grand adventure with seven little letters. Of course, it helps when the gameplay is as focused as it is here. (Journey, PS3) A/A+
